Modern technology perfectly complements our skill and commitment to compassionate care. We are pleased to treat our New Hampshire patients with the latest dental instruments and devices.
iTero Digital Impressions
Digital impressions are a wonderful alternative to messy, uncomfortable putty impressions used in most dental offices. Patients of Nashua Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, P.L.L.C. enjoy the advantage of our iTero system, which gathers pertinent data through the touch of a wand. In just three to five minutes, the iTero digital impression system provides us with extraordinarily accurate images that enable us to complete long lasting, lifelike restorations.
In addition to digital x-rays, real-time photos and videos have become crucial to the achievement of excellence in patient care. Our intra oral cameras are very small and unobtrusive when inside the mouth. In addition to providing us with images we can zoom in on, the intra-oral camera system also allows us to share information with you immediately.
Micro air abrasion
Historically, teeth have been prepared for restoration with a dental drill. In our New Hampshire office, we increase precision while decreasing patient discomfort, noise, and vibration with the use of a quality micro air abrasion instrument. Instead of manually grinding down tooth structure, micro air abrasion removes diseased material with a burst of air and tiny aluminum particles. The preparation of teeth is faster, more accurate, and more comfortable.
Milestone scientific anesthesia system
Research suggests that as much as 25 percent of all dental appointments are cancelled due to fear of injections or pain. We suspect that many more are never made, or are put off until urgent care is necessary. We want you to look forward to your visits with our friendly team! Dr. Viola and Dr. Whitcomb are pleased to use the wand injection system created by Milestone Scientific, reducing discomfort and maximizing performance.
Computers in operatories
Each of our operatories is equipped with a computer, giving us immediate access to records, images, and other data that helps us plan treatment and explain it to you. Computer technology is also an integral part of the design process for CEREC® restorations and patient education.
The two distinct advantages to digital x-rays are higher definition images and less exposure to radiation than conventional x-rays. Friendly to our patients and to the environment, our digital x-ray system requires no film processing, no chemicals, and produces no hazardous waste.
We are pleased to perform the most thorough assessment for oral abnormalities using the state-of-the-art VELscope screening tool. Using only a safe blue light, this device quickly identifies abnormal tissue through fluorescence. This tool has been recognized by the World Health Organization as "an innovative device that addresses global health concerns."
With our CEREC in-house milling system, Dr. Viola and Dr. Whitcomb are able to design, fabricate, and affix beautiful, durable crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in just one visit. Based on CAD/CAM technology, CEREC produces excellent restorations that fit extremely well and can last for many years. Of course, patients love the fact the CEREC bypasses the need for messy impressions and multiple visits.
Invisalign® is one of the most innovative orthodontic treatments we have ever seen, and our patients agree! Instead of metal or tooth-colored brackets and wires, the Invisalign® system straightens teeth with clear plastic aligners that have been created using advanced imaging and software. Convenient, comfortable, and discreet, Invisalign® may be your ideal path to a beautiful, healthy smile.
Lasers are invaluable tools in dentistry. We use our diode laser in hygiene and cosmetic procedures as well as restorative treatments to expedite procedure time, encourage rapid healing, and improve comfort during and after care.
Radiosurgery is an innovative, low temperature technology that facilitates optimal comfort for oral surgery procedures. As the name suggests, Radiosurgery utilizes a radio transmitter to produce a variety of waveforms. These waves allow us to vaporize tissue accurately without bleeding to produce a "microsmooth" incision. It all adds up to more comfort, faster healing, and very little downtime or pain after oral surgery.
Digital imaging is one of the best diagnostic and educational tools we have at Nashua Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry, P.L.L.C. Taking clear, high quality images before, during, and after treatments allows us to plan adequately and successfully carry out treatments to the desired result.
